thank you tapers, Charlie Miller and the Archive!
Subject: Another fine recording
This show is incredibly mellow. (Even the audience is mellow, notwithstanding people yelling to Phil to "turn it up" (?!?) and demanding "Jack Straw!" and "Dark Star!" But then, it is Buffalo in January. Brr.) There are some comments throughout the various uploads which suggest the show is nothing special. Perhaps not. But I think it to be good. Just very mellow. Miracle and The Other One are about as aggressive as they get. Even Minglewood is pretty tame compared to how they could be known to tear it up.
Jerry's playing on El Paso is wonderful, though I'm not sure how many folks appreciate what the band could do with this old country tune. His finger-picking on Peggy-O is lovely, too. It and Stagger-Lee are very slow, but I think they work just fine in the context of this show. Bobby and Keith combine to make some great sounds on Loser! Estimated and Sugar Magnolia are both fun as well. I really like what Jerry does with his solo at the end of Sugar Magnolia. Don't expect much from this Dark Star. It's short and doesn't stray far from it's core structure. In fact, truth be told, it doesn't actually accomplish very much musically. Still, there it is in a very listenable show.
Donna, evidently, was not at this show. The downside to this is that Jerry sounds, at times, somewhat timid trying to provide backup vocals by himself. The (small) upside is that (eventually . . . like the reprise of The Other One) Phil starts to provide some vocals. Finally, as has been mentioned elsewhere, Keith can be somewhat, uh . . . absent.
All in all, a decent show, superbly recorded.

Result: outstanding audience recording (hats off to Mr Moore rip) up there with the recent 'matrix' releases. It really is that good - if you didn't know, you wouldn't know!
Even I can't listen to 71/72/73 all the time - you need a break to keep things fresh, so give this a spin, you won't regret it, I promise.

Subject: The source is fine
I just downloaded this source. It uncompresses fine. So I think the problem was in your download.
This is an astonishlingly good 1979 show, and a great recording. If you want to drill down, check out the post-drums music. But the show is largerly better than that. This is well worth your attention.
